What We Need More of in 2018

What We Need More of in 2018

Isn’t it interesting how words come to mean something?

Like “Babe,” for instance. When I was little it meant a tiny infant. When the movie came out, it meant a pig. And when I got married and heard it from my hubby’s lips, it meant me!

Somewhere along the way “grace” has gotten a reputation for being soft, fluffy, and comfortable. Kind of like being snuggled by so many adorable puppies.

But grace is much more than that – especially when she travels with her companion, Truth.

How God Really Feels About You

How God Really Feels About You

You know the verse. You probably even memorized it as a kid.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NIV)

Have you ever struggled to fathom, much less believe, that much love?

What makes “God loves me” so hard to grasp — even as believers? Why is it His love doesn’t soak into our everyday lives better?

Often our definition of love is too shallow or earthy. Our minds can’t quite fathom what it’s like to be loved that much. And we miss another key factor . . . Continue reading →

mistaken id: i am an athlete

mistaken id: i am an athlete

Have you ever considered that we answer the question “Who am I?” multiple times a day in our heads? From wife to business owner to cook to bird watcher, we tell ourselves who we are over and over.

And after a while whatever we say sticks with us — for better or for worse.

Here’s the true story of a girl who thought her identity was one thing until God showed her it was bigger and more beautiful than she’d first thought!

*P.S. I’m excited to introduce our new video series on Mistaken Identity. Stay tuned for more fun to come!

what if god is okay with you today

what if god is okay with you today

What if God’s okay with who you are today?

No, really. I mean what if He’s absolutely, 100% okay with you right this second, believer?

What if He’s not sitting up there tsk, tsk-ing and shaking His head, muttering “Sure wish she’d get this lesson so we could move on”?

What if instead He’s gazing down on you in love, saying to His nearest archangel, “Hey, did you see that kiddo of mine down there? Boy, do I love her! She’s fabulous. And look at her with my Son in her – she can do ANYTHING. I can’t help smiling this wide when I think about her.” Continue reading →

how deep the father’s love for us

how deep the father’s love for us

There’s something about a good song that gets me right in the heart. You know what I mean? The words and the music intertwine to create this powerful message that digs deep.

I felt that way about Stuart Townend’s “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us” when I listened to it again last week. The words are amazing, written from the viewpoint of what it cost God to send His cherished Son to the cross for you and for me.

How deep the Father’s love for us

How vast beyond all measure

That He should give His only Son

To make a wretch His treasure

Hearing how Townend came up with the tune and the lyrics is inspiring.
